While the post itself doesn’t mention why these games have been banned, it notes that these games have also been banned on other German store sites such as Gamesplanet because they’re on an index of “Which titles are (mostly) on the index of media harmful to young persons have been removed from the German store.”

While these games have been removed from Steam, NeoGAF users such as Hektor have noted that anybody who owns these games already can still play them.
